In the issue, Mister Freeze froze Robin with his Cold Gun.

In our calculations, we will use the fact that the Cold Gun gives frostbite.

MISTER FREEZE’S COLD GUN


In ‘Batman: Mr. Freeze’ (1997) #1, Batman has recovered Mister Freeze’s Cold Gun. Successfully, he reverses the defrosting process of the Cold Gun. In the end, Robin is restored.

In 'Batman: Mister Freeze' (1997) #1, Batman reverse-engineers Mister Freeze's Cold Gun's defrosting to save Robin and Gotham City.

To sum, Mister Freeze’s Cold Gun turns individuals into ice by giving them frostbite. Then, we will use this statement to calculate Robin’s frostbite.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

In the graphic novel, Mister Freeze gave Robin frostbite with his Cold Gun. As a matter of fact, NHS defines frostbite as damage to skin and tissue as a result of exposure to temperatures below -0.55C° (31F).

Let’s calculate the heat capacity required to lower body temperature from 37C° to -0.55C°. First, “Chapter 95 Cold Weather Survival Time” states water has a specific heat of 4186 J/kg C°. Second, the equation to calculate the heat capacity is:

\begin{equation*} Q = mc\Delta T \end{equation*}

Q = mcΔT = (57 kg)(4186 J/kg C°)(-0.55C° – 37C°) = -8959505.1 J.

ENERGY PROJECTION

To sum, Mister Freeze generated -8959505.1 J of heat capacity. Moreover, Mister Freeze had to generate a negative City Level of Energy Projection since he likely hit Robin with a blast 803.603118317 times greater than the power output of 6th Ave. New York skyscraper.

IRON FIST (DANIEL RAND)
EARTH-616

In ‘The Deadly Hands Of Kung Fu’ (1975) #18, titled “Fists Of Darkness, Fists Of Death”, Danny Rand performs a super strength feat. In the subway, two outlaws are fleeing capture. During their escape, they bump a young woman onto the train tracks. In order to save her, Danny stops the train with the Iron Fist.

How much super strength does it take for Iron Fist to stop a speeding subway train?

IN THE ISSUE, DANNY SAVED A YOUNG WOMAN. TO THIS END, DANNY STRUCK THE SUBWAY TRAIN WITH THE IRON FIST TO A FULL-STOP.

Danny Rand used the Iron Fist to stop a train to a full-stop.

We will use kinematics and Newton’s second law of motion to estimate the force of the Iron Fist.

KINEMATICS AND NEWTON’S SECOND LAW

Watch the video on “The Force Required To Stop A Car”.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

First, let’s enunciate the variables. The average mass of the New York subway train is 38600 kg. Its top speed is 24.7222 m/s. We assume the force Danny exerted was over a meter distance. Second, let’s calculate the acceleration.

a = -vi2/2Δx = -(24.72222 m/s)2/(2*1 m) = -305.594080864 m/s2.
F = ma = (38600 kg)( -305.594080864 m/s2) = -11795931.5214 N.

Finally, let’s calculate the work done.
W = Fd = (-11795931.5214 N)(1 m) = -11795931.5214 J.

SUPER STRENGTH

To sum, Iron Fist generated -11795931.5214 N of force to stop the subway train to a full-stop. Moreover, Danny had to generate a City Block Level of Super Strength since he likely stopped the subway train with a punch 0.1072357411 percent of the power output of New York City.

BLACK PANTHER (T’CHALLA)
EARTH-616

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #1, titled “Doomwar (Part 1)”, T’Challa is stated to perform an intelligence feat. Before the “Doomwar”, Doctor Doom has masterminded the Desturi’s coup d’etat. As a result, T’Challa, Shuri and the Dora Milaje have fled Wakanda. Sinisterly, Queen Ororo has been tried for witchcraft and for being a foreigner. Later, Ororo is held in a cell that nullifies her X-gene. As T-Kan mentions, the cell was invented by T’Challa.

How much intelligence does it take for T’Challa to invent a cell that nullifies the X-gene?

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #1, Ororo is imprisoned in a cell built by T'Challa that nullifies the X-gene.

Ororo has been imprisoned in a cell that nullifies her X-gene. The cell was invented by T’Challa.

Since homo superior has mutations in the human genome it may or may not have the same total number of base pairs. We will calculate the energy required for DNA synthesis in humans to estimate the mutations in the human genome caused by the X-gene.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

From a study, the average energy requirement per diploid eukaryote is:

CDNA,d≃526Lg.

Then, the average number of bases in a gene is 8310 base pairs.

Gene length = 5478 bp introns + (12 exons * 236 bp) = 8310 bp.

Also, there are 25000 genes in the human genome. In addition, one gram/mole of ATP produces 470000 kJ. Then, there are a total of 100 g of ATP in the human body and the Formula Weight of ATP is 507.18 g/mol. Finally, Ororo weighs 65.77 kg.

Refer to “DC Day Explained: Brainiac’s AI Is The Digital Processing Of All The Information In The Galaxy”. Importantly, it contains information about the human brain’s storage capacity. Also, refer to the Intelligence Scale.

First, let’s calculate the moles in 100 g of ATP.

Moles in 100 g of ATP = (100 g)/(507/18 g/mol) = 0.19716865807 mol.

Second, let’s calculate the energy of ATP hydrolysis in DNA synthesis.

DNA synthesis cost of the human genome = (526 * 8310 bp * 25000 genes * 100 * 470000 J * 1 g/mol * 0.19716865807 mol * 1 hr)/(65.77 kg * 1000 * 10 hr * 3600 s) = 427693027.778 J/s.

Without the information on chromosome loci mutations, this is a baseline estimation.

DNA Synthesis B/s = (427693027.778 J/s * 0.125 bytes * 1 hr)/(1 J/K * 310.15 K) = 172373.459527 B/s.

Processing Speed In T’Challa’s Brain = 172373.459527 B/s.

Ratio To Genius = (172373.459527 B/s * 100)/(11195.2997653 B/s) = 15.3969490001.

INTELLIGENCE

T’Challa generated at least 427693027.778 J/s. Since this is a baseline level for a human, it would require more than a Mathematical Computation Level of Intelligence to nullify the X-gene. T’Challa had to generate more than 15.3969490001 times the processing speed of a Leader.

Wonder Man choked out Red Hulk. Wonder Man likely held Red Hulk longer than he can hold his breath.

We will use Hulk’s lung capacity from a crossover comic to estimate Red Hulk’s lung capacity.

HULK’S DURABILITY

In ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ (1995) #1, Batman attacks Hulk with sleeping gas. Since Hulk can hold his breath for half a year, the Dark Knight attacked a pressure point. Using martial arts, Batman kicked Hulk at the solar plexus. Incredibly, this caused the Green Goliath to gasp for air, knocking him out.

In 'Batman vs The Incredible Hulk' Batman performs a super strength feat. During the battle, Batman kicks Hulk at the solar plexus, depriving him of air and making the monster susceptible to sleeping gas.

We will use this feat to calculate Hulk’s lung capacity.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

In “Feat: Batman, ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ #1”, we extrapolated the Hulk’s lung capacity. The energy of Hulk’s vital capacity was 6.4660831*1021 Joules.

Since Red Hulk has the Hulk’s super powers, we can estimate him to have similar vital capacity.

FIGHTING SKILLS

Wonder Man generated 6.4660831*1021 Joules of biochemical energy to choke out Red Hulk. Simon had to generate a Warrior Madness Level of Fighting Skills since he likely hit Red Hulk with a Planetary attack.

According to Battle Ranker: The Competition, since Wonder Man generated a Planetary Level choke hold, he can defeat 500000001-10E13 men in combat.

SUPERMAN’S DURABILITY



In ‘Action Comics’ (2007) #847, Superman and Pa Kent visit the Kepler supernova in a Sunstone spaceship. Suddenly, Superman hears a distress signal. In fact, it is coming in the neighboring solar system about a Sun Eater. Flying off, Superman meets an alien spaceship with an entropy bomb to destroy the Sun Eater. Since the craft was damaged, Superman carried the entropy bomb into the Sun-Eater. Incredibly, Superman withstood red sun radiation and delivered the bomb. Moreover, the explosion was the size of 50 supernovas at light speed.

We will use these two feats to calculate Superman’s durability.

NUMBER CRUNCHING



In the first issue, Superman was weakened by red solar radiation. Nevertheless, the Man of Steel withstood the explosion of the Sun-Eater. As a matter of fact, it was equal to 50 supernovas. In “Feat: Superman, DCeased #6”, we estimated the energy released by a supernova is roughly 1.8*1047 Joules. Then, let’s estimate Superman’s durability.

Superman’s Durability = (1.26*1045 J)(50 supernovas) = 6.3*1046 J.

To calculate Luthor’s intelligence, let’s find the conversion.
Conversion = (6.3*1046 J* 0.125 bytes )/(310.15 K * 1 J/K) = 2.539094*10^43 B/s.

INTELLIGENCE

Lex Luthor processed 2.539094*10^43 B/s of information in order to invent the radiation rifles. Lex Luthor had to generate an Adaptive Evolution Level of Intelligence since he is likely 3.612*1042 times more intelligent than the Internet.

A Scarlet Witch mind-controlled She-Hulk ripped Vision in half.

We will use Vision’s durability to estimate She-Hulk’s super strength.

VISION’S DURABILITY


In ‘Avengers’ (1969) #62, Black Panther flies Hawkeye, Vision and Black Knight to Wakanda. There, they are met by Wakanda soldiers who open fire on them on M’baku’s orders. During the fight, Vision withstands Wakandan Vibranium bullets.

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1984) #8, Captain America uses his Vibranium alloy shield to survive the Human Torch’s nova flame as the Fantastic Four superhero defeats Ultron.

We will use these feats to calculate Vision’s durability.

NUMBER CRUNCHING



First, let’s estimate the durability of Captain America’s Vibranium shield. Captain America’s Vibranium shield can withstand the intensity of a nova flame. In Feat: Superman, ‘DCeased’ #6, I calculated the energy released by a supernova to be 1.8*10^47 J. Cap’s shield is actually 32.5% dense in Vibranium. Let’s calculate the durability of Vibranium in terms of energy.

Durability of Vibranium = (0.325)(1.8*10^47 J) = 5.85*1046 J.

Vision’s synthezoid body is made up of Horton cells. Let’s calculate the density of Vision’s body.

Density Of Vision’s Body = (136.08 kg)/(1.91 m*1 m*0.5 m) = 142.492146597 kg/m3.

Let’s multiply the density times the number of Horton cells.

Vision’s Durability = (5.85*1046 J)(3*1015 Horton cells*10-12 kg/m3)/(1 Horton cell*142.492146597 kg/m3) = 3.2816063*1048 J.

Since the Vibranium bullets did not budge Vision, the super strength needed to affect his durability is at least 3.2816063*1047 N or 49838390581938219895287958115183246073298429 PSI.



DURABILITY



She-Hulk generated more than half of 3.2816063*1047 N of force in order to affect Vision’s durability. Vision had to generate a Galaxy Level of Super Strength since she likely ripped Vision with a force 9.3227452*1024 times greater than the gravitational force of the sun on Earth.

Calculations for She-Hulk, ‘Avengers’ #500

Gravitational Force Of Sun On Earth = 3.54*10^22 N

Durability of Vibranium = (0.325)(1.8*10^47 J) = 5.85*10^46 J.
Density Of Vision’s Body = (136.08 kg)/(1.91 m*1 m*0.5 m) = 142.492146597 kg/m^3.
Vision’s Durability = (5.85*1046 J)(3*1015 Horton cells*10-12 kg/m^3)/(1 Horton cell*142.492146597 kg/m^3) = 3.2816063*10^48 J.
Comparison = (3.2816063*10^47 N)/(3.54*10^22 N) = 144477.635593.

IN GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY

NIGHTWING (RICHARD GRAYSON)
NEW EARTH

In ‘Outsiders’ (2003) #3, titled “Role Call, Part Three: Joke’s On You”, Nightwing performs a super strength feat. The Outsiders are thwarting a Gorilla City attack on New York that serves as a diversion for Joker to kidnap and torture the president, Lex Luthor. During the battle, Nightwing draws blood on Gorilla Grodd twice with his Eskrima sticks.

How much super strength does it take for Nightwing to draw blood on Gorilla Grodd twice with his Eskrima sticks?

In 'Outsiders' (2003) #3, Nightwing draws blood on Gorilla Grodd twice with his wingdings.

NIGHTWING HIT GORILLA GRODD TWICE DRAWING BLOOD. GRODD’S SKIN CAN WITHSTAND 551996 PSI OR 3805879139 PASCALS OF STRAIN, 0.42287545988 TIMES AS DURABLE AS BONE.

NIGHTWING GENERATED 27488970 NEWTONS OF TOTAL FORCE, THE EQUIVALENT OF 3089.8831569002514 TONS. THIS IS NOT HUMANLY FEASIBLE AND LIKELY REQUIRED MARTIAL ARTS WITH PRESSURE POINTS.

Variant Comics


Nightwing and Outsiders are fighting Gorilla Grodd and the army of Gorilla City in New York. In order to interrogate Gorilla Grodd, Nightwing hits him twice on the face, drawing blood.

We will estimate Gorilla Grodd’s durability in order to rate Nightwing’s super strength.

GORILLA GRODD’S DURABILITY


In ‘Flash’ (1991) #47, Vixen, Flash (Wally West) and Pied Piper are held captive by Gorilla Grodd. Flash frees himself from Grodd’s collar used for mind control and hits him with a speed blitz of three thousand punches.

NUMBER CRUNCHING



This is a stress and strain problem. Let’s punch values into the Stress Calculator, on the Omni-Calculator. We get the following results. Refer to the Calculations Toggle Arrow to view the calculations for Area (A) and Force (F).


Nightwing, ‘Outsiders’ #3

Let’s calculate Nightwing’s first hit. The first hit is with a variable force at an angle of 45 degrees. Let’s calculate the acceleration knowing that the Eskrima stick weighs 0.425243 kg.

a = F/m = (15000000 N)/(0.425243 kg) = 35273949.2478 m/s2.

Arc Length = θ × r = (45° × π/180 rad*15000000 N)/(1 rad) = 11780970 N.

Then we calculate the second hit.

Arc Length = θ × r = (60° × π/180 rad*15000000 N)/(1 rad) = 15708000 N.

Total Super Strength = 27488970 N = 3089.8831569002514 Tons.

SUPER STRENGTH



Nightwing generated 27488970 N of total force making Gorilla Grodd bleed. Nightwing had to generate a Building Level of Super Strength since he hit Gorilla Grodd with 3089.8831569002514 Tons. This is not humanly feasible and is likely a result of martial arts with pressure points.

Metahuman Strength = 1000 kg = m.

Area = (pi)(10 cm)(5 cm) = 157.07963 cm^2.
Force = ma = (1000 kg)(3000 punches)(5 m/s^2) = 15000000 N.
a = F/m = (15000000 N)/(0.425243 kg) = 35273949.2478 m/s2.
Arc Length First Hit = θ × r = (45° × π/180 rad*15000000 N)/(1 rad) = 11780970 N.
Arc Length Second Hit = θ × r = (60° × π/180 rad*15000000 N)/(1 rad) = 15708000 N.
Total Super Strength = (11780970 N + 15708000 N) = 27488970 N.
Super Strength In Tons = (27488970 N * 1 ton)/(9964.016384 N) = 3089.8831569002514 Tons.
Ratio Of Young’s Modulus = (3805879139 Pa)/(9000000000 Pa) = 0.42287545988. https://openstax.org/books/university-physics-volume-1/pages/12-3-stress-strain-and-elastic-modulus
